He baited a 14 year old girl through Facebook. He started by acting like a good “role model” since he knew the parents but then switched it by playing dumb and asking her inappropriate questions.

A lot of pictures were exchanged through Snapchat but some on other social media’s and text. Eventually he asked for her to meet him at the Knox Ambulance during Horse Theif, in which he described it in detail in a message. She met him there and since the town was busy, and he was the only one working the actual station he took her on the bedroom and had sexual intercourse with her. Later, he asked her to meet him at another location that was now described as the Fire House of Knox, described l the backRoom which is the banquet hall.
